Slow Cooker Garlic Parmesan Potatoes
Crisp-tender potatoes loaded with garlicky parmesan goodness – and it’s the easiest side dish you will ever make right in the crockpot!
Christmas is in T-minus 24 hours. The tree is up. The presents are wrapped. And the menu is set. No, wait. I actually don’t have any of that ready yet. I should really finish my Christmas shopping at some point.
But first, these garlic parmesan potatoes – a super simple side dish that anyone can make.
All you need is a handful of baby Dutch potatoes tossed in the slow cooker with a little bit of olive oil, butter, garlic and fresh herbs (or dry herbs, whichever you have on hand). You’ll top it off with a lid and let it cook nice and slow until you get that crisp-tender goodness.
When ready to serve, go ahead and sprinkle on that freshly grated Parmesan. You can even add a little extra – after all, it’s Christmas time, and I’m sure Santa will forgive you for doubling up that Parmesan!

Thank you Chungah for the nice and easy recipe. Happy Holidays.
What a novel way to prepare potatoes! I’ll be making them this week. I’m dreaming of some new variations too. Thanks for the inspiration.
Why on earth have I never thought of doing this. Perfect for a healthy, whole food side dish! =) YUM
This would be even easier and quicker using canned whole potatoes rinsed and drained and added to the pot along with the herbs,etc.
The only problem is, canned potatoes are nasty tasting.
You are very rude.
I don’t think she meant to be rude cause canned potatoes do taste bad. This is a really easy way to use some fresh herbs and a bag of fresh small potatoes!! I bet it will turn out great. Good Cooking ya’ll!
Oh I don’t think she was rude. It’s a fact that canned and powdered potatoe just do not taste the same.
OK in. A stew or soup perhaps if you are desperate. 🙂
No, you are very touchy.
Not rude – canned potatoes are gross.
guess what………………this person and every other one in america and canada where i am from have the freedom of speech, meaning they can say anything they like. including saying that canned potatoes are nasty. youre lucky she was so polite. and if you dont like what she said, move on. shes giving people a recipe for Gods sake, not teaching people english. comment on the subject at hand. youre lucky i m not saying what i would like to right now…………………..if you dont like something, its your issue.
thank you karin!! I have always said that. if something bothers you- its probably YOUR issue
Karin you keep saying that she is lucky because you and the person who commented “aren’t saying what you really want to.” I want to know why you both feel that freedom of speech I’d the equivalent of the freedom to be rude and childish. You also talked about her having a personal problem because she was offended and yet your comment clearly displays aggravation. You are correct you do have freedom of speech. What you do not have is common decency or good manners.
While people have the right to free speech in many areas, this is a comment section of a blog so the speech can be regulated by its ‘owner’ according to universally applied terms for all participants. In most areas however, while people retain freedom of speech that does not guarantee freedom from others judgment when they exersize that. Some may agree, others may not. If you put yourself out there you invite scrutiny which may mean dissent as well as agreement.
It is my experience that it’s usually better to present things as a personal preference/opinion as opposed to a universal truth. For example “I prefer fresh potatoes to canned.” No one can argue with this as it’s your personal opinion and you have not tried to speak for others. They may present another opinion, but all you’ve done is speak for yourself. Where you step into difficult territory is insulting others who may not have access to fresh vegetables and rely upon canned either due to availability or cost. Fresh vegetables are more expensive, require different preparation and storage. What seems exceptionally easy to some may be prohibitive to others. It’s best not to judge others or assume everyone has the same advantages you do. Few would outwardly do so knowingly, but statements such as that can have that effect. Finally, just because you can say something and you feel others should simply get over it doesn’t mean you always need to, and it doesn’t always reflect on others. It’s called self awareness.
Just my opinion, and in exersizing my free speech clearly I’ve opened myself up to scrutiny.
It’s true we do have the freedom to express our opionions without fear of government retaliation. The government can’t jail us or kill us for speaking our minds. However, we are not free of the consequences of what we say. So if what a person says upsets someone else, they have the right to be offended and respond. They have the same rights. BTW, I am not fond of canned potatoes either but that’s a personal preference.
She is not being rude. Canned potatoes are sitting in water so flavour is yucko! Couldn’t be easier than buying a bag of mini potatoes & throwing them in the slow cooker. Easy peasy!!
Sarah, you were not rude. Just stating a fact. Have a great day.
The ones I tried were not nasty tasting, they were devoid of flavour but the texture was unpleasant.
Totally agree! Canned potatoes are discussing!
Canned potatoes vs real fresh potatoes
is like canned spinach vs fresh just picked spinach.
Your comment was rude. There are many nicer ways to express that opinion. Obviously, you chose not to use any.
I was looking for a good roasted potatoe for my slow cooker and this sounds great but what I was shocked at was conversation that start in 2014 on real potatoes vs canned potatoes and people were still commenting about being rude 3yrs later.
I must be the only one who likes canned potatoes! Fresh whole potatoes are best but I don’t think there is anything wrong with canned potatoes. I just might make these Christmas day with canned potatoes.
These look oh so yummy!
Will be making these for sure. Question: what are baby Dutch potatoes? Maybe a regional “thing”? They look like baby Yukon gold to me. Do you think I could use those instead? Merry Christmas!
Baby Yukon will work just fine.
Any tater will work!!
Yukon gold would work great
You can even make your photographs look mouth-watering in a Crock Pot… I am so jealous! 🙂 These potatoes look delicious… will be making these New Years! Hope you’re having a Merry Christmas.
ohhhhhhhh my gosh. DELISH
What size crockpot do you use?
I used a 3-qt slow cooker but any size should work just fine.
Hi… Just made these tonite. Followed recipe exactly, except used small Yukon’s. Could not find the Dutch potatoes. Whole family loved them. I think I would use crushed rosemary next time instead of basil & oregano. (Did not use dill). Just a personal taste. Right before serving, sprinkled with the cheese & kosher salt. This recipe was SO easy & convenient 🙂
Can this recipe be doubled or tripled and what do you suggest for the cooking time. Im not a big slow cooker fan but if these taste as good as they look I may be converted!
The recipe can certainly be doubled or tripled. As for cooking time, I recommend adding an additional hour and going from there to ensure that the potatoes are completely cooked trough.
Thank you, I will definitely try this over the weekend!
I used to use my crockpot only in the summer (when it made sense because of the heat). Now I use it all the time…especially with all the great recipies from Pinterest. Maybe trying some of the recipes will change your mind. Bon Appetite!!
Making these right now! Next time I make them I think I’ll do rosemary, thyme, and garlic…my favorite combo!
Looks amaing! I have everything in my house except baby dutch potatoes. Can you use red-skinned potatoes?
Yes, that should work just fine.
will the potatoes turn out crispy? Thanks!
They will have a crisp-tender texture.
I made these for a crowd at Christmas. I was disappointed because there is no crispness to them…they turn out more like oily boiled potatoes, sorry to say. The crock pot is just too moist an environment to become crisp.
I’ve made many different types of tatoes in the crock pot. I’ve made this dish many times on the stove. This will be the first time I’ve done it in the crock pot. Thanks for the recipe.
I live on my own and would love to make these. Do you think if I made a pot they could be divided into single servings and frozen?
Shannon, unfortunately, I cannot answer this with certainty as I have never tried freezing this myself – there were no leftovers left to freeze! Please use your best judgment for freezing and reheating.
Unfortunately potatoes don’t freeze well. The texture changes. Of course, you can try it with just a few and see if you like them that way!!
Looks amazing! taste amazing. Love this recipe and my family too jajaja!
I have made alot of your recipes.. No fail ever, The faves are, Butter Chicken, Beef and Brockley, Chicken and Mushroom soup, alot of the Asian dishes too.
I am making the Spinach dip and these potatoes today.
lemon Orzo was devine. Oh, and the Mexican dishes are fab!
Thanks , for all you put into this site, I use it alot.
Thanks for sharing! These look delicious!
Hi, wanted to let you know the first recipe that I tried was the chicken with sun dried tomato cream sauce…damn delicious it was. Had your buttermilk chicken recently and it was good as well. Plan on making these potatoes tomorrow. I plan on cutting the potatoes in half…wondering if the ingredients would be too overwhelming if I kept them as directed or should I also cut them in half?
Kim, if you plan on halving the potatoes, it may be best to halve everything else.
Thank you! I thought so too but I didn’t know if they would be too dry. Will try halfing. Assuming will be fabulous, will post of it seems better to keep the measurements as in original recipe. With your chicken, we love some sauce soni decided to cut the thighs back to 4 and kept the measurements as directed. It worked out fantastic for the sun dried tomato recipe, mmmm mmm, so yummy!
Did halving the recipe work? I’m needing to do this also!
I did half in a 2 quart slow cooker. Used red skinned potatoes cut in 4 or 6 pieces. They didn’t crisp but we’re the best potatoes I have ever made. Wonderful flavor, even though I forgot the parsley.
Chungah – I love your blog and have made several recipes on it over the past few months! These looks absolutely delicious. I love roasted potatoes with herbs and garlic. The hardest part about making these potatoes will be waiting to eat them! 😀
If I doubled the recipe would I have to cook them longer?
You may have to adjust the cooking time as needed to ensure that the potatoes are fully cooked through.
I have had a Slow Cooker for the last 30 years plus but always thought I had to add liquid to the contents or it would crack. So good to know I can do these potatoes and other dishes and not only casseroles and soups. Thank you. Never to old to learn.
Do you put the olive oil right in the slow cooker on top of potatoes?
Yes, that’s exactly right. Why dirty another bowl?
